Engadget Review

The Kindle Oasis is yet another stab at a premium e-reader, and its cheaper price and new features make it far more compelling. You give up a lightweight design to fit in a bigger screen and metal case, but for most people that'll be well worth it.

Pros
  • Larger screen than before
  • Waterproof
  • Metal case feels sturdy
  • Cheaper than the last model
Cons
  • Heavier than the last Oasis
  • Metal case seams can be uncomfortable
  • Audible integration seems useless
